I think I might be autistic Anonymous 78369

Since I was a kid I have been very weird and quiet. I never thought I had autism until last year but I was diagnosed with Atention Deficit Disorder when I was 10 years old so obviously I'm not neurotypical
I don't want to self diagnose but I'd love to read more experiences of autistic woman! I'll post mine as well.

I think autism in woman works different!
It's not as noticeable for high function autistic woman because they mask better and have more "normal" special interests

Many of my friends growing up are and I often attracted to weirdos so I feel a kinship with the autists but I’m not actually autistic.

Professionally diagnosed, it's definitely worth talking to a psych if it's something that's worrying you. My classmates/friends/teachers suspected I was on the spectrum all my life and I got tested in my early 20s. Took a few hours, a little difficult to focus (ironically also ADHD diagnosed) but totally worth it even just for the peace of mind.
As other anons pointed out, women do present symptoms differently: https://sparkforautism.org/discover_article/are-girls-with-autism-hiding-in-plain-sight/
Women also tend to "mask" which I never had a word for until diagnosis. 100% rec. (sage for blogpost)

There is definitely a certain level of detachment from other people and their norms some people such as me seem to have. Ive been so overwhelmed by existence for so long that i have memories of being a baby. Despite this i scored only 122 points in this test and would not consider myself autistic. I have acted like an absolute autist all my childhood and adolescense (i dont mean just social anxiety but also my way of making sense of the world), sure, but people are simply not that complicated that one could not ever figure them out just by learning and observing. This is why autism gets diagnosed / should get diagnosed either with mental retardation or with people of higher disagreeableness who have a tendency to stick to their own beliefs instead of trying to conform. Despite my life having been lonesome hell due to how my brain works, i dont think i would have ever benefited from an autism diagnosis, considering the stigma it would have asserted on me. Afterall, ive always wanted to get rid of my anxieties. Embracing them would not ever have brought me happiness and wouldve only further alienated me from everyone and everything.

Seriously you all, dont just diagnose yourselves because of your tendencies to aknowledge how overwhelming reality is and how uncanny normal people appear for not seeing what you see. Its okay to be slightly detached from being human, it doesnt always mean that you have to divide the world into "you" and "them". You might have a lot more in common with people than you think. And even if you dont, wouldnt it just be nicer to figure people out (maybe read a psychology book or two) and be seen as a cool rather intelligent lone wolf whose just on another level, instead of being seen as a literal retard.

OP here! I never said i was autistic, but it might be a big possibility
Thank you for your thoughts and i think you are right in a lot of tje stuff you were writing about
Honestly I just wanna know how to operate better so i understand myself

Anonymous 79317


ive been thinking about a possible diagnosis since i was 13
i used to have pretty bad sensory problems as a child (hating some sounds, having a weird irony taste when seeing some intense colors, hating some textures in food/clothing, even crying about them, and much more) but i dont really have the money for this kind of thing yet. its kind of sad how my family really disregards this kind of things and have never got me checked. its undoubtly going to be much harder getting a diagnosis now that im older (and being a woman on top of that)

I think I am more of a schizoaffective than an autist. The social and communication parts were hard for me to answer due to absence of real life experience of those situations.

Anonymous 79327


Hmmm…. Interesting quiz. I have considered whether or not I may have some form of autism a couple times, but every time I've just decided I most likely don't. I think I'm just unsocialized… I haven't done much actual research, but there is a bit of overlap between anxiety and autistic symptoms. At least in terms of some of the behaviors and being overly sensitive to too much stimuli or whatever.
Anyways, here's my result. Enjoy. I guess.

i always thought i had autism because i was a really weird fucking kid
>born pre-mature (more likely to develop adhd/autism)
>thought i was a cat when i was little
>selective mutism
>got upset and cried when my routine was disrupted
>ex: a teacher moving me to a different spot, i cried
>meltdowns when my mother tried to touch/kiss me
although it is so hard because a lot of my shit can also be from trauma

Professionally diagnosed with ADHD as a teen but always suspected autism. I spoke with a therapist and she said I'd be too high-functioning to bother getting a diagnosis so I never pursued one.

Although I do think I'm a bit autistic, and my mother frequently points out that I'm too sensitive, specially because I easily get annoyed at her voice. I feel like she's shouting at me at all times.

Never thought I'm autistic, but always hung out in spaces that have a lot of weirdos like me and also autistic people because nowhere else accepted me, it was really nice to find people who can feed off my non-stop stream of thoughts and topics and actually use it to discuss things together.

well, this makes complete sense. oftentimes I notice extremely specific emotions and details that others don't, feel as if they're own, and then be haunted by them; in the meantime, I act in callous ways that end up hurting others, which hurts myself. =.= so many vicious cycles. I always struggled with being able to act on the things I sense in others, and I really wish I didn't. There's so many things I notice like that–and yet, I can't even mask myself to fit in.

broken in the blandest way possible.
